All us swans look alike.

PS

I agree with The Pook's assessment of the photo if not his attribution. All the bird pics posted here are fantastic.

Was this near your house? Do you live in the Big Woods? It's so hard to take photos when it's snowing! You did a marvelous job. It looks just like Bran's, too. I'll have to dig out the one I took of a Pileated Woodpecker in our backyard when I get home. A truly stunning bird. :0)

These are not very good photos, but if anyone else has one s/he has taken personally, I'd love to see it! These guys are tough to find, and I was trying not to scare it off...



They are good sized, about as large as a crow. I don't see even one a year, so they are fairly rare. I was happy to get these shots, poor as they are! :0)

nice! I've seen those a few times, but you're right, they like to stay out of sight.

Twosleepy sees with four eyes. It took me a while to see the two are one and the same. Last year I had this one mistaking my wall for a tree. Never made it in time to my camera.
Nice pix! Hey, strange , it only prints the left one.

>Hey, strange , it only prints the left one

not if you treat the 'right' one as a separate image; i.e., right click on it and select "view image", then you can treat of that one. (browser differences may apply)
